In general, West Hamilton neighbourhoods offer a charming blend of urban heritage, suburban planning, and beautiful natural spaces that earn them high praise in the rankings.
Real Estate in West Hamilton
Hamilton is a city on the rise. As a whole, the city and its neighbourhoods are gaining visibility and popularity, with that comes an increase in interest and prices. West Hamilton is no exception with the average sale price in the area of around $525,000 - up from the $505,000 average in 2019. The mileage of your budget may vary depending on which neighbourhood in West Hamilton catches your eyes. For instance, the neighbourhoods west of the 403 - Westdale and Ainslie Wood - sport a higher regional average of about $560,000 in a market that contains a lot of detached properties and is popular for student rentals. East of the 403, but south of Main street contains Kirkendall North and South. The average in this area is about $535,000 and that number is balanced between older bungalows and condos priced under $500,000 and more modern properties that are seldom listed below that point. The final area north of Main Street contains Strathcona and is a lot more urban than the others. The average price of a listing in this area is about $475,000. Homes in Strathcona are older, smaller, and are at a higher density than the other West Hamilton neighbourhoods. Prices are lower on older properties here, but newer condo developments are just as expensive in Strathcona as anywhere else in the Hamilton core.
Living in West Hamilton
No matter which neighbourhood you choose, West Hamilton is consistent in its quality amenities and convenience. All West Hamilton neighbourhoods enjoy close proximity to the 403 for commuting and most neighbourhoods have their own go-to shopping and dining hub. Westdale and Kirkendall get a special mention because of the overall trendiness of their respective Westdale Village and Locke Street. If a connection to nature is something you are after, Kirkendall’s Chedoke Park, Ainslie Wood and Westdale’s Cootes Paradise access, and Strathcona’s close proximity to the waterfront Bayfront Park are all huge perks. When you factor in good public transit service and a decent availability of schools dispersed throughout Hamilton’s west end, the neighbourhoods are ideal for students, families, and young professionals looking to be close to the heart of the city.
